Celebrate Germany's most famous grape with the German Wine Princess in the fifth edition of Riesling Weeks!

Organised by the German Wine Institute ("Wines of Germany"), the internationally successful campaign Riesling Weeks began in 2005 in the USA. The objective of the campaign is to promote the awareness and knowledge of German Rieslings as well as other grape varieties worldwide, whereas in Hong Kong "pairing Riesling with Asian food" always plays a particular role.

Join Christina Schneider, German Wine Princess 2016-2017, to explore over 150 German wines accompanied by mouth-watering platters prepared by renowned chefs.

German Wines - Leading the Field Again Worldwide

Germany’s winegrowing regions are among the most northerly in the world. That is what makes German wines so distinctive: the grapes enjoy long periods of growth in moderate summer heat, which gives the wines their renowned lightness and fruity aroma. Except for two regions in eastern Germany, all the country’s winegrowing areas are in the south and south-west, where they are subject to the mild Gulf Stream climate from the west and the dry continental climate from the east.

It was once mocked, rejected, and almost forgotten: Riesling wine. But for some years now, this wine variety – which is also a potent symbol of Germany - has been more popular than ever before. Especially abroad.
